APNA's definition of primary health care nursing covers health, scope of practice, primary health care, roles and settings. We also explore general practice nursing and Phillips et al. six roles of the general practice nurse.
Help our future nurses
APNA's Student Nurse Placement Pilot Project
Due to COVID-19, Monash University second year nursing undergraduates are struggling to secure their clinical placement hours—they need our help.
APNA is lending a hand to coordinate placements at primary health care workplaces—including general practice, aged care and community health—across Victoria.
We invite you and your workplace to take part in the project.
As an incentive, your workplace will receive $300 per student you host.
To host a student:
- There needs to be nurse supervisor each day of the placement (job share is acceptable)
- The nurse supervisor needs to be a registered nurse or nurse practitioner
Each placement lasts for three weeks (15 days). There are five placement periods to choose from. The first period starts on Monday 7 September 2020 and the last period starts Monday 14 December 2020.
Sky's the limit on how many students you host. Whether it be one or 15 students, you're contributing to someone's career and Australia's future health care.
Below are some useful resources to get your head around the project details:
- Student Nurse Placement Pilot Project Flyer
- Student Nurse Placement Pilot Project Overview
- Student Nurse Placement Pilot Project FAQ
Registrations for the project have been extended to Monday 31 August.
If you have any questions, please email Sam Moses via firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, if you know of any other Victorian practices or primary health care workplaces that would be interested in hosting a student nurse, please give them a nudge and share this webpage.
We hope you can help support the next generation of Australia’s nurses.
